Information Processing Equipment. M. P. Doss (Editor).
Reinhold Publishing Corporation (New York), 1955. 270
Both the editor and the background of this book are
familiar to members of the ACS Division of Chemical
Literature. M. P. Doss is the present chairman of our
Division, and the book itself is based on papers delivered
before the Division in September, 1953, at a
"Symposium on Equipment for the Preparation, Reproduction,
and Utilization of Technical Information."
In turning these papers into a book, the authors, editor,
and publisher have labored well. All of the chapters are
clear, complete, and unusually well illustrated (probably
the reason for the book's relatively high price).
Certain chapters appear outstanding to the reviewer
by virtue of their thorough coverage. These include
"Special Typing, Stenciling, Hectographing, Figure Preparation,
and Miscellaneous Equipment" (by Robert E.
Mixson), with its index of supplies and equipment;
"Microcopying, Methods and Use" (by Hubbard W.
Ballou); and "Author's Guide to Effective Slides-Projection
Equipment and Copy Preparation" (by L. S.
Bonnel, et al.) The other chapters also contain much
detailed information not available elsewhere in digested
While Mr. Doss states that the book "does not purport
to cover all makes of equipment in the information-processing
field," it comes surprisingly close to doing so.
As might be expected, however, some very good equipment
has received little or no mention (Peirce dictating
equipment, for example). But, all in all, this book should
prove a valuable addition to the growing literature on
documentation methods and equipment. John C. Lane.

The recent passing of Mary Alexander came as a shock
to her many friends in the ACS Division of Chemical
Literature. In her brief career, Mary had established ar
outstanding record of achievement in the fields of technical
writing, chemical nomenclature, and petroleurr
chemicals. She was assistant to the late Gustav Egloff.
Those of us who were privileged to work with her or
programs and committees of the Division will sorel;
miss her clear thinking and friendship.
Howard S. Nutting has received the Austin M. Patter:
I Award of the ACS Dayton Section, in recognition of
outstanding contributions in the fields of chemical nonr
clature and chemical literature....E. J. Crane has be
1 honored by an award from the Science-Technology D
. sion of the Special Libraries Association, in testim,
i to his contributions to library science.
